Could you recommend any good books/articles/etc on system performance tuning? I've read 'system performance tuning' and 'web performance tuning' from O'Reilly but didn't find them all that useful. Thanks.

    I've seen of useful, or useful looking books about Solaris system performance tuning - most of them printed by SUN. I've found the course material of HP Education quite useful. System performance tuning is hard, and system specific. I would distrust any book that claims to discuss system performance tuning without focussing on a specific OS. I'd also distrust any "cookbook".

    Go for something that spends a lot of time analysing performance problems, that discusses performance measuring tools (like glance for HP-UX), and goes into detail explaining how the system works.

      I was actually considering a few Solaris books, I'll check them out.

      Thanks for the informative (as usual) advice :)
